I am taking part in Mondays Finish the Story, which is a challenge that provides a photo prompt and the opening sentence to your story. The rules indicate that the story you come up with must be between 100-150 words, not including the opening line….Ready?
Richard and his wife Sonja meet their new neighbors Gary and Sammy. They became fast friends. One day, after playing a game of softball, Gary suggests to Richard that he sleep with his wife Sammy, which Richard does, while Gary sits in a bar in town.
Hearing sirens the following morning, Richard looks out the window and sees the emergency vehicles stop at Gary and Sammy’s house. Something bad has gone down. They remove Sammy’s body, and the following day Richard is arrested for murder. She had been bludgeoned to death with a bat. His fingerprints were on the bat by the body, and they had semen.
They took Richard away, and Gary smiled. Wearing gloves and using that bat was one way to get out of a bad marriage.
